In 2015 Tricia wrote her thoughts on feminism for The Persimmon Tree Journal and in 2016 a contribution to Trish Hopkinson’s blog on why she regrets waiting until after retirement to begin writing seriously.
Eco-poetry? Poetry that highlights connectedness in nature, responsibility to care for the world we’ve been given, help to remember what we have lost – and encourages holding up hope for doing no more harm. Knoll’s poem “Gray Whale” is included in the 2018 anthology Fire and Rain – Eco-Poetry of California out from Scarlet Tanager Press.
